Answer:

#1.98 g/(mL)#

Explanation:

To calculate the density, we have to use the formula below:

# "Density = (Mass)/(Volume)#

  • Usually, density will have units of #g/(mL)# when dealing with a liquid or units of #g/(cm^3)# when dealing with a solid.

  • The mass has units of grams, #g#.

  • The volume can have units of #mL# or #cm^3#

We are given the mass and the volume, both of which have good units. All we have to do is plug the given values into the equation:

#Density =(500g)/(252mL)#

Thus, the solution has a density of 1.98 g/mL.
